    We have reservations for this fall and would like to get magic bands not magic bands+. It says you can get either but I can only find the +bands to order through my reservations do you know how I can get regular magic bands?

    Hey there, Cheryl! Welcome back to planDisney. I'm so glad you found your way back to us!

    Ah, a fall visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! While August to October usually means all things Halloween, by mid-November, when you're planning to arrive, things are starting to look wonderfully festive for the holidays. Usually, by this point, Magic Kingdom Park has started to offer its after-hours headlining holiday event, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. As such, that park is usually all decked out with its beautiful Christmas trees, wreaths, and so much more! I'm planning to attend the party this year myself so I'll be following along with the Disney Parks Blog for the announcement of dates. I can't wait!

    When you are pre-ordering MagicBands through your My Disney Experience account, the inventory is constantly changing. The key is to click the arrow on the right to see all of the options. I prefer to select "Grid View" so I can just scroll down the page to see them all. When I just logged into my account to check, the standard MagicBands (referred to as "MagicBand 2" here) were toward the bottom (or end) of the selections. Be sure to keep checking back as new patterns and designs are brought in, sometimes daily!

    As you're planning your vacation, you may want to see if and when Disney Jollywood Nights is offered. This was a brand-new holiday after-hours event that was introduced at Disney's Hollywood Studios last year. I love the aesthetic of this park at the holidays and I'm very tempted to check it out myself. Perhaps I'll find a fancy male romper to wear specifically for the occasion! Not familiar? Well, they're rompers designed for men. I'm a little obsessed, but I don't have a holiday one yet. Or a Disney holiday one! I think I need to work on that. Asha from Disney's Wish told me to keep wishing...so shopDisney, I'm wishing. Can you hear me?!

    Cheryl, I hope you have a wonderful visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth. If you have any other questions leading up to your vacation, please reach out to me.
